I've been in the theatre business for about 30 years performing in close to 100 productions, including Broadway. You may know me as Javert in Les Miserables, but most people know me for originating the title roles of Jekyll & Hyde, for which I received a Tony nomination, Outer Critics Circle Award and Drama Desk Award, among others. Through the years I've performed in countless concerts, benefits, demos, etc. for everyone and their grandmother. And now, I'm finally making my Debut Solo Album!
I'm very excited about this project because no music inspires me more that the Classic Standards of the 30's and 40's. I've got an extremely talented and hot band backing me up, all lead by the incomparable Barry Levitt at the piano.
This is an album which has been inspired by my recently created one-man show, A STANDARD LOVE, however it is tentatively entitled, THE LOOK OF LOVE, which also happens to be one of the songs. Others include, "How Little It Matters", "Ain't That A Kick In The Head", "All Of You", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Fine Romance", "A Wanna Be Around", "Once Upon A Time", "Witchcraft", "Cold, Cold Heart", "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams", "Prisoner Of Love", and many more!
Everything is in place...the musicians, the studio, the arrangements. We are ready to immediately start recording. No time will be wasted and all the pledges received from the site will go directly and solely to production of this album. If you look to the right side of your screen you will see, I hope, some inspiring and unique incentives for you to join this "historic" event. Every bit helps, so please come on board for this swingin' project! And thanks so much...
Oh, I'd like to give a special "shout out" thank you to my friends Ahkil Bali and David Wasson for filming and editing my video! Thanks guys!!!!
